Scope and Content

After the death of Caryl Annesley,

Viscount Valentia in 1949, the male line

of the descendants of Francis Annesley

(VII) was extinct, and the title of

Viscount Valentia passed to the

William Monckton Annesley, the senior

descendants of Francis (VII)'s brother

Martin. There are no papers concerning

this branch in the main collection, but

there are several in SL18 (the Aplin and

Hunt papers). These include papers about

the Cotton family (from whom Martin's

wife Mary Hanbury was descended), and

the affairs of Martin's second son

Arthur Henry (d. 1792), from whom the

present Viscount Valentia is descended.
